I ran this 2 years ago, and forgot last year. However, I would like to resurrect it again for 2011/12.

Objective: Pick the 2012 NCAA Men's Division III field now.

You need need to pick the tournament selection from each Pool A conference AND the 3 Pool C selectees.

In case you've forgotten, the 8 AQ's will go to:
ECAC-E
ECAC-NE
MASCAC
MCHA
MIAC
NCHA
NESCAC
SUNYAC

Deadline is midnight October 29. That will give you three weeks to contemplate your <strike>navel</strike>oracles.

Your selection should look something like this:
ECAC-E - Southern Maine
ECAC-NE - Becker
MASCAC - Worcester
MCHA - MSOE
MIAC - Hamline
NCHA - Stout
NESCAC - Wesleyan
SUNYAC - Potsdam

Pool C: UNE, UWSP, Salem St.
(the above is for entertainment purposes, and is not to reflect anyone's picks)

So, Joe, how are you scoring this? I gotta know so I can plan strategically, especially for the <strike>lucky losers</strike> Pool C bids.

so, Joe, how are you scoring this. I gotta know so I can plan strategically.I'm a simple man with a simple mind. But to allow for human failures:
1 point for every team in the tournament that you get right, regardless of how they got there.
2 points for every Pool A you get right.
4 points for every Pool C you get right.

For example, if you pick Norwich to get a Pool A and Castleton to get a Pool C, and it happens that way, you'd get 8 points. If, however, Castleton got the Pool A, and Norwich got the Pool C, you'd get 2.

Max points then are 39.

A lot of 7-4 split picks. What is the though here, two foreground games in the west, or one first round game win Adrian heading east again?

Possibly two from the west going to Placid?
